Epoxy floors and surfaces produce stunning results and benefits that increase the value of your home. Epoxy not only has aesthetic value such as custom color patterns or colorful chips but also provides various functional benefits as well. They provide protection for your floors against both foot and vehicle traffic with a durable, long-lasting coating system. Even in high-use areas of your home, you can use epoxy flooring to improve the floor’s quality and protect it against chipping and scratches. Whether the area is a garage, commercial office, or a living room; epoxy is offered in a wide range of color combinations to create an eye-catching statement or a breathtaking but modern, professional style.
Even better than the color patterns or colorful chips are the metallic epoxy color options. When epoxy is mixed with metallic particles, the epoxy reflects light with a mirror-like shine for a stunning result that shows off the quality of depth. Metallic epoxy floors are unique because despite using the same color combination or technique, the metallic epoxy floor will have its own characteristics that will make itself one-of-a-kind. It is recommended to go with color patterns or chips if you want a predetermined style, but if you want something unique and eye-catching then metallic epoxy colors would be the best option for your floors. With a variety of colors and visual effects such as craters, ripples, or even marble-like swirls; the metallic epoxy color combinations are only limited to your imagination and using the correct color combinations for the perfect mix.
Color choices are important because they determine the style and look of your floor. From earth tones such as browns, beige and copper to exotic colors like lime green, purple, and teal; even the category of the color will produce a different feel to the floor. Muted and darker colors as the base color will produce an elegant and professional result while brighter colors create a feeling of energy and liveliness.
Color contrast also plays a big role in the style of your floor as it will determine how bold or subtle the end result will appear. Whether it is a bright blue with copper accents or black with a mix of silver, choosing the right colors for your floor is essential to getting your desired result.
Since the pigments in the epoxy bind and mingle where the colors meet, blending of the colors is natural as well as unavoidable. When picking out your color combination, it is important to keep in mind what the transition from one color to the next will look like. Depending on the technique used, some colors blending might not be noticeable such as blue into green or blue into purple, but others will stand out more such as red into white creating tints of pink.
Contrary to the way it looks, just like solid pigmented floors, chip floors or bare concrete; metallic floors are not any slicker than other types of floors.
